Resound develops support package for local families

Published on:

A NEW package of help and support for parents and families is being launched this month at Resound in Mangotsfield,.

Resound’s Family Resources programme includes a parent buddy scheme, a parenting course, a cafe and a weekly toddler group.

The team has also put together a roadshow, which will visit community events during the year to promote its services and talk to parents.

If you’d like the roadshow to come to your event, please get in touch with Jan or Jayne at Resound in Blackhorse Road.

Resound’s cafe is open every Thursday in term-time from 11.30am-1pm. It is followed by a toddler group from 1-2.30pm.

Resound’s parent buddies, who are all parents and grandparents, provide short-term informal support, offering a listening ear and an opportunity to talk through a particular issue that may be causing stress.

The volunteers are trained in working with parents, listening and communication and basic child protection and they have up-to-date DBS clearance. They may signpost parents to specialist services when needed.

The next Time Out for Parents course starts on Tuesday June 10, 7.30-9pm. Sessions are held weekly for five or six weeks and cost £7.50.
